May I express my grateful thanks to our members whose subcriptions are our financial backbone and to our Friends in the Village and the wider community who have supported our varied activities. In the last year we have raised, over £3500 from Subscriptions, £3500 from events and we have received Grants of £1000 from the High Halstow Lottery and £20000 from the Friends of Kent Churches.  

This enables us to make significant progress on our list of major works including the repair of the Windows and Roof. The estimate for repairing two windows and removing associated asbestos is £10,000 leaving a further eight to do.

Successful events have included:- 

A  Christmas Concert. 

A  Summer Concert. 

An Armistice Concert. 

The Scarecrow Festival
